"Perhaps my biggest critique of pair programming is this overriding need to work as a single enlightened individual rather than as two members of a team."
Agree. And in my experience what happens, in the best escenario, is that one member of the pair ends up taking ultimate control, and the other just learns and gives opinions... Being honest and pair a more experienced programmer with a Jr, will help the junior to learn if the experienced dev, has the mentoring bug in him... otherwise is juts an ego fight
